Includes Panic Sync, our secure, super sync service — for FREE.

It's classic. You step outside for a few seconds to eat some gyros and the server goes down, or you lie down to do some light reading and a web page needs an emergency typo fix. Maybe your company uses IRC. Maybe you just like to check in on your servers often. Either way, you're the type of person that already uses SSH. Having a quality SSH client in your pocket is a very good idea.

Welcome to Prompt 2. In the three years since Prompt was released and became a favorite of admins, we've been constantly releasing updates, while also taking notes on what significant new features people wished Prompt had. Then, we did almost all of it.

Prompt 2 is, simply put, an excellent SSH and TELNET client. But how can it make SSH tasks easier? Read on.

Finally. Sync your favorite servers, passwords, private keys, and clips, between Prompt on all of your iOS devices. It’s fast, it’s extremely secure, and best of all, it’s free.

Excellent SSH client

I’ve been using it for several years and I can’t fault it (except maybe the size of the font, but I’m getting old).

Panic is such a great developer.

Also, if you work daily on remote unix, working with text files and scripts, Coda is surprisingly useful.

Simply the best SSH app.

It tried a lot of different ones because I use it every day.
Prompt 2 is the best.

Slow / unresponsive to security related question on related macOS

Author does not respond to security related question regarding Panic Sync on related MacOS software.

Personally I depreciated all Panic Inc. Software because of that.

Transmit 5.1.4 on MacOS 10.13.4 listens to an arbitrary port when activating panic sync. In my opinion this would be sloppy code or a bad backdoor.

I did re-install and never heard back from your engineers.

I guess you don’t like remarks. Il liked your beautiful software but despise compromising on security. I share this because I care.

If my mails are stuck in your spam filter, that is due to your filter configuration choice.
